I took great interest in Tribune staff writer Kaytlyn Leslie’s July 18 article entitled, “Haggen food stores to lay off workers.”
The article makes the point that large stores with the higher prices — like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue — will not make it in this area because they do not “match the clientele.”
Excellent point! I was pleased with Haggen, at first, by keeping all of the Albertsons employees. However, because of the greed of Haggen by virtue of its ridiculously high prices for this area, it is losing money and will be laying off employees or cutting their hours.
Bad business move, Haggen. Did you even check out the average earning power of the people of this county? We can’t afford your prices, and we will shop elsewhere. Wake up, end the greed, lower your prices, and keep our friends and relatives employed. Be the good guy, not the bad guy.
